OC, SI, ASI sued for land grabbing, extortion in city
A case has been filed against five people, including the Officer-in-Charge (OC) and two other personnel of Mohammadpur Police Station, on charge of involvement in land grabbing and extortion.
Advocate Kutubuddin Ahmed, member of Dhaka Bar Association, filed the case with Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Khurshid Alam’s court.
The advocate sued against OC M Jamaluddin Mir, SI M Razib, ASI M Khorshed of Mohammadpur Police Station, M Mamun Hossain, an official of Nur Ali Real State, and M Shohel.
According to the case statement, family members of Kutubuddin, including his mother, have been living at house no 339/A, Jafrabad at Sangkar in the city’s Mohammadpur area for the last 50 years.
Over the last few years, the family left the house for renovation and shifted to a rented house.
On October 9 last, he returned to his ancestral home at Jafrabad as the renovation work was completed.
However, two of the accused -- Mamun and Shohel -- stopped him in front of the gate and ordered him not to enter the house without the permission of the OC of the police station.
At one stage, the OC, SI and ASI of the police station reached the spot.
Later, SI Razib and ASI Khorshed took Kutubuddin to the garage of the house and beat him up.
The police personnel also demanded Tk 4.50 million from the lawyer in exchange of the house.
As Kutubuddin denied paying the money, the policemen threatened to kill him in crossfire.
Later, Kutubuddin managed Tk 0.20 million and gave the money to the OC, according to UNB report.
